    I've got my computer dual-booting windows xp and fedora core 2 right now, but want to delete fedora since my wireless card doesn't work with it and I rarely use it. Do i just run 'fixmbr' from the windows xp cd? Anything I need to know to avoid screwing something on my windows drive up?

    I get a message that says this might screw up my partitions, just ignore it and go ahead with it?
